Art therapy and other creative approaches can help not only children, but also adults and couples heal from trauma, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, develop healthy coping skills, resolve conflict, and communicate more effectively with others. Art therapy requires no experience in art.
The therapeutic use of art can also assist children, teens, adults, and couples experience personal growth through creating and reflecting on their art. Art therapy can help people express fears and other emotions that may be difficult for them to verbalize.
Healing From Trauma with Art Therapy
Trauma survivors often find it difficult to verbalize their emotions and share their experiences with their loved ones. Without an outlet for these painful emotions, they may end up reliving their traumatic experiences in their mind over and over again, which leaves them unable to heal.
